iHealth Lab announced that three of its mobile health apps (My Vitals, My Vitals 2.0 and SpO2) and nine corresponding personal mHealth devices are now integrated with Apple’s HealthKit in iOS 8. The fourth app, Gluco-Smart, will be available later this week.
With permission, users are able to automatically share readings from their iHealth devices with the new Health app, giving them a central dashboard to review the most important health data, and make that data available to doctors and health providers.
Overall, iHealth Lab provides fifteen different key vitals data to HealthKit, including blood glucose, blood pressure, heart rate, steps, distance, active calories, sleep analysis, weight, BMI, body fat, lean body mass and oxygen saturation. All this information is accessible within the Health app from where users also can share it to medical stuff, if they want to.
